The Nordex Group recently passed a new milestone in the Republic of Ireland, thanks to the commissioning of Energia Renewables’ 95-MW Meenadreen wind farm in Donegal. Nordex has now officially passed the 500-MW mark for wind turbines in operation in the country.
In total, Nordex turbines with a capacity of 529 MW are now producing green power for the Irish Republic, corresponding to a market share of almost 20%.
In addition, in 2016 the Nordex Group improved its position in this country, with 184 MW in order intake the manufacturer approximately doubled the figure for 2015.
An example for the good development is the order for the Slievecallan West project received at the end of 2016. Nordex will be supplying 18 N90/2500 turbines for this wind farm for the Irish wind farm developer JV, Invis Energy.
The turbines are to be installed on 80-meter tubular steel towers in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Invis Energy has also contracted the Nordex Group to service the turbines on the basis of a Premium Service contract for a period of 15 years.
